Just a Gwai Lo: Notes
Search this site
I check in to a venue, and in the 'shout' message, I use a predetermined format, maybe just a sentence staring with "Reading", or maybe it's a[n, ugh,] hashtag.
Then it will post to my @
account in the format of:
Reading [book title by author name] at [venue name]. [twitter handle of venue]
Maybe I should include the 4sq link?
Foursquare Real-time API
requires the ability to receive a POST over HTTPS
SSL Certificate from
, tutorial at
Integrate SSL certificate with Node.js
Created an app listing on the Foursquare website (just a test app for now)
Manually authenticated my test 4sq app (not the app I built but the app definition on 4sq) with test account
assign the lat/lon to the tweet
post the tweet
get more information about the venue? Like the venue's canonical URL? Or maybe its "best" photo?
format the string, making sure it all fits in 140 characters
